Don’t we all need a little more magic in our lives?  A gorgeous night of lights is coming back to New Jersey this September and you should put it on your calendar now!

It will take your breath away…a totally enchanted evening on the water that is perfect for a date, a family outing or just to be solo and serene.

The event is the New Jersey Water Lantern Festival and it is spectacular. In fact, it is rated the best water lantern event in the country.

It is all about the message of fun, hope, love and putting good vibes into the universe.  It is such a pretty optic I recommend sharing it with your kids.

Once you buy a ticket you are all set.  You arrive and decorate your own lantern any way you see fit.  It could be a loving tribute to a love one lost, a message you want to express, the names of your family or anything else you want highlight.  It is also a popular way to set your intention of dreams for your future…you write them on the lantern and watch them go free on the Hudson River.

Of course there will be plenty to eat and drink with food trucks and beverage vendors too.

This special event will be on September 24th from 4:00pm to 9:30pm. Ticket prices run about $40 for an adult and $14 for a child under 14, kids under 7 are free.  You can get tickets and read more about it here.

Word is there will also be an even in Philadelphia this year.

Looking for a perfect night out?  That has to start with a great restaurant if you ask me...
